Thanks for this Debbie, I would walk across the country to give to the victims of Sandy rather than to give to the Red Cross, Salvation Army is always good.

You have to feel for those folks on the East Coast, no doubt about it.

I would love to find a place in South OC that will take donations like coats, blankets, clothes etc. Does anyone know where I can bring stuff like that? I feel like we all need to do more.
